My last thread today, not trying to be a spammer. Just for comparison to the base of the efreet I posted earlier. The base is super fragile. I made it using plaster, and I probably should have made it with epoxy or greenstuff. I'm also not super happy with the way her eyes and the gems on her head turned out. There is not enough contrast with her skin and hair. I probably should have made the gems bright yellow or amber and used pure white for her eyes. Geoff
I found it appropriate that Deep Purple's classic song 'Burn', was playing as I poured the sand on this guys base to finish him up... So here is Ral Partha's Efreet from the AD&D line: Some close ups: The first 2 pics were just to see how different the figure would look against different back drops... I did the runes on his sword in Blue, thinking that if I was an evil fire creature, I would want a scimitar that would work well against my enemies / kinfolk, so a Frost Brand... Would work better against water creatures than a flaming sword as well... I put a line of Reaper Blue liner along the bottom of the sword where it turns down to the edge, and left the dark Black Metal there, but it doesn't really show up... I also put some under the runes on the blade to try and make them stand out a bit more. I did the same thing on the gold portions of the hilts and his lamp with Brown liner, trying to ease into some shaded metallics... I used some brown grass tufts and sand for the base as I was trying for an 'Arabian Knights' kind of theme. I took some last minute advice and did some extra glazes of the base Scale 75 Violet on the sash to even it out... WiP Here C&C Welcome as always! George
As has been a theme this year, the minis I manage to paint will all count towards the resolutionary challenge. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. /fanboy gush start/ Oathsworn Miniatures have some fantastic, old school miniatures, in the style of the period that Citadel Miniatures had soul, also known as "Oldhammer". Oathsworn is a cottage industry company, consisting of sculptor Michael Lovejoy and his lovely and talented wife, Jo (who is learning to sculpt as we speak). With 5 or 6 successful kickstarters under their belt, great communication and behind the scenes how-its-made guides and video clips, last but not least delivering on schedule, with consistently high quality every time. I cannot recommend Oathsworn enough. This is the kind of company I would buy almost anything from, just to support them and their work, even if I never got around to actually painting anything...something which I intend to correct in the coming months. /fanboy gush stop/ First out is the Fire Giant, or Efreeti if you like: With his asbestos loin cloth. I am trying out some new backdrops to get better pictures. So far so good. Did I mention that I struggle with flames? Turns out I not only struggle with, but actively detest painting lava-like crusts as well. Hence the not so impressive paint job. I simply do not have the patience. Which means that Balrog will be sitting around for a while before I take a stab at painting it... Metal, 40mm base.
